Yes, that makes a lot more sense

One of them (Bestewind 50) was nominated recently for boat of the year on the luxury class (did not won). Here you can see it being tested.





But you are right regarding prices. The Dutch aluminium centerboarders for the same size are considerable more expensive than the French ones, I don't know why but that is true even in what regards other boats. Maybe because the production is much smaller...anyway I don't think Cornell is a very rich guy so it makes sense that him, like most of us had looked for the achievable dream and a boat he could pay. The Bestewind is a lovely boat but it costs about 1 million dollars.
